    Is it possible to use rollfilm backs on the Titan? Does it have a graflock compatible back?

    Well, I only got mine in the post 15 hours ago, but I would say 'not without some modification'! The back snugly fits a standard double dark slide holder, but doesn't have the width for a grafmatic, or the graflok sliders for a roll film holder. You might be pushing it to even get one of those old Calumet or adapt-a-roll roll film holders in either (although having now said that, that's the first thing I'll test when I get home later on)...

    Must be possible with a film holder sized adaptor plate... You don't need to be very accurate with the film plane placement with a pinhole!

    It seems they do 'fit' - but would need some modification to make them snug....

    If it fits physically, there's always the possibility of rubber banding it / cardboard spacers. Thanks.

    Roll film back for Harman Titan

    I have used some black foam board from a craft shop, which when cut to the MPP back size will make up the thickness of a Toyo darkslide. Slip the together and you have a lightproof film holder.It cost me £6.00 for five sheets in a pack I only required a quarter of one sheet,but thats the way its sold...

    Singer Graflex RH-50(67/70mm) is 121mm height. would it work? Since its not flat i would need foam yes. What are the dimensions of the harmanback for filmbacks?
